We've got a flower garden that, among other types of plants, are several different variations of daffodils. Was nice to have a free cutting garden during the spring. Last year, after the last round was cut, my dear wife saw fit to cut back all the leaves. This spring, she's defending herself for doing it as there were twice as many shooters popping up when the snow melted. We ended up with a lot of leaves, but no flowers at all.

Are they a lost cause? Should I dig them up and replace them or leave them be until next year?

Thanks!

I would have the Wife stay in the house for now until the leaves die out on their own, I think they will be ok.

To each their own. Normally cutting does help flower better. Patience is the watchword here :)

One of my daffodil bunches didn't flower for years, so I cut down the leaves last year, and they flowered this past months. I think daffodils are hard to kill, and they might surprise you next year.
